What are the major issues confronting social policy-makers today? What theoretical perspectives shape our thinking about the causes of social problems and how we should respond? What can you do to influence decision makers about which policy choice to make? In this completely revised and updated edition of Canadian Social Policy, a new generation of social policy analysts discusses these important questions. Anyone wanting to know the debates concerning current policy issues, to understand the policy-making process at various levels of government, how they can influence it, and how they can assess whether policies are working, will find this book invaluable.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The text's high level of interesting and thought-provoking content was pleasantly surprising ...The text is comprehensive and undoubtedly will challenge students ... to think about substantive issues, and develop a level of critical thinking to be employed when scrutinizing social issues ... the fact that the text actually offers practical solutions to problematic social policy is a welcome addition ... The text is predominantly geared towards the social work profession yet it is easily applicable to any discipline." - Kim A. MacInnis, Bridgewater State College - 200409
"An outstanding collection." - Wraychel Horne - 200502
